Lucas Di Grassi claimed his first win of the season for Venturi in a very calculated victory that saw the Brazilian use Attack Mode to perfection to secure victory.
The Venturi driver applied pressure on Jake Dennis throughout the race, and tried to undercut Jake Dennis with his second Attack Mode.
Dennis opted not to take Attack Mode to cover off Di Grassi, and instead opted to try and defend his position and have two Attack Mode activations compared to Di Grassi’s one to try and win the race.
It meant that Dennis had to overtake Di Grassi with his Attack Mode. Once Dennis took his second Attack Mode, he closed up to the back of Di Grassi, but was unable to overtake.
Di Grassi opted to take his final of three Attack Modes when Dennis still had 15 seconds of Attack Mode remaining, which put Dennis back into the lead of race.
However, Di Grassi closed in once again, and when Dennis took his final Attack Mode with eight minutes to go, the Brit fell back to second and had to pass Di Grassi to win the race.
But, Di Grassi had one more trick up his sleeve as he deployed his Fanboost during Dennis’ final Attack Mode, which helped him build a gap that Dennis couldn’t claw back and had to settle for second place.
Nyck De Vries came home in third place for Mercedes. He was able to pass Antonio Giovinazzi and Antonio Felix Da Costa on his way to the final step of the podium.

Stoffel Vandoorne finished in fourth and extends his championship lead to 36 points over Mitch Evans, with only 58 points to play with in Seoul.
It looked like Vandoorne would only have a 22-point lead going into the final weekend of the season as Evans was running in fourth place with Vandoorne in fifth.
However, with two laps to go, Evans’ Jaguar came to a halt between Turn 9 and 10, causing him to pull off into the run-off area and retire from the race.
